Introduction: Pituitary adenomas represent 10 to 20% of intracranial tumors. In children, craniopharyngioma are the most common tumor of the sellar region. The symptoms can include headache, vomiting, pituitary deficiency and in pituitary adenomas, hormonal excess. The visual examination can find a visual field defect such as a bitemporal hemianopsia. We present a rare case of a pituitary adenoma in a 15-year-old girl with binasal hemianopsia.Observation...

Diagnosis of Kallmann syndrome in adulthood

Kamoun Elyes , Mekni Sabrine , Adel Meriem , Rojbi Imen , Ben Nacef Ibtissem , Mchirgui Nadia , Khiari Karima

Introduction: Kallmann syndrome is a rare genetic condition characterized by the association of a hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia. It results from the failure of GnRH cells to migrate to the hypothalamus and lack of development of the olfactory bulb. The main symptom of Kallmann syndrome is delayed or incomplete puberty usually associated with an impaired sense of smell. We herein describe a case of Kallmann syndrome discovered at the age of 57 years old.<p class...

Besrour Chayma , Imen Rojbi , Sabrine Mekni , Adel Meriem , Nadia Mchirgui , Ibtissem Ben Nacef , Karima Khiari

Introduction: The orbit represents the second target after the thyroid gland in autoimmune dysthyroidism. In 80% of cases, endocrine orbitopathy occurs as a result of hyperthyroidism, especially Grave’s disease (GD). Males are rarely affected but the damage is more serious.Observation: We report the case of a 52-year-old patient, an active smoker (35 Pack-Year), transferred from the neurology department for treatment of bilateral malignant exophthal...

Endocrinopathies and diabetes: cardiovascular risk assessment

Khiari Marwa , Ben Nacef Ibtissem , Rojbi Imene , Mchirgui Nadia , Lakhoua Youssef , Khiari Karima

A large number of endocrine pathologies can be associated to abnormalities in carbohydrate tolerance up to diabetes. The latter participates in the high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality during these pathologies. The aim of our study was to assess the cardiovascular risk in a diabetic population suffering from an endocrine pathology. This is a retrospective study conducted in the department of endocrinology at Charles Nicolle Hospital involving 54 patients hospita...

Clinical and hormonal characteristics of adrenal incidentalomas

Belaid Rym , Oueslati Ibtissem , Mimita Wafa , Khiari Karima , Mchirgui Nadia , Abdallah Nejib Ben

Introduction: Widespread use of abdominal imaging has led to the identification of an increasing number of adrenal incidentalomas (AI) in the last decades. Causes of these adrenal masses are multiple.Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical and hormonal characteristics of AI.Materials and methods: The study was a retrospective monocentric analysis of 44 patients with AI who underwent radiographic and endocrine eva...

Belaid Rym , Oueslati Ibtissem , Mimita Wafa , Mchirgui Nadia , Khiari Karima , Abdallah Nejib Ben

Introduction: Cardiothyreosis (CT) is the most frequent and dangerous complication of hyperthyroidism (HT). It is defined as an association of HT with severe heart abnormalities such as: rhythmic troubles, heart and/or coronary insufficiency. The aim of our study was to describe the frequency and the clinical characteristics of CT in Graves’ disease (GD).Methods: Patients with GD were enrolled into a retrospective study. The prevalence and the clini...

Risk factors associated with the severity of Graves’ ophthalmopathy

Belaid Rym , Oueslati Ibtissem , Mimita Wafa , Khiari Karima , Mchirgui Nadia , Abdallah Nejib Ben

Introduction: Graves’ ophthalmopathy (GO) is an autoimmune disorder affecting the retro-orbital tissues. It represents the main extra- thyroidal expression of Graves’ disease (GD). Its onset and progression are influenced by several factors that are potentially modifiable. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for severe GO.Methods: Patients with GD were enrolled into a retrospective study. We compared possible risk factors and var...

Waist to height ratio as a new marker of metabolic syndrome in type 2 diabetic patients

Horchani Imen , Oueslati Mehdi , Ouerfelli Meriem , Oueslati Ibtissem , Khiari Karima , Abdallah Nejib Ben

Introduction: Metabolic syndrome is closely related to abdominal obesity. Classic anthropometric indices such as bmi and waist circumference have been used for the screening of metabolic syndrome.Recently, it has been reported that waist to height ratio is more closely associated with insulin resistance.The aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between waist to height ratio and components of metabolic syndrome amo...

Introduction: Hemochromatosis is a disorder caused by an excess of iron deposition in the parenchymal cells that leads to organ dysfunction. In patients with secondary hemochromatosis due to multiple blood transfusions, endocrinopathies such as diabetes mellitus, hypopituitarism frequently develop.Herein we report the case of a patient with B-thalassemia major who developed diabetes mellitus, hypopituitarism and primary hypoparathyroidism due to secondar...
